"A civilized society does not punish nearly 800,000 young people for coming out of the shadows, a place they found themselves by no fault of their own. Over 124,000 young people in Texas will be negatively impacted. As a member of the Texas Legislature for 20 years, I have been a fighter for the children of Texas, and that commitment doesn't discriminate based on paperwork or country of birth. I implore my Congressional colleagues and President Trump to right this wrong immediately. Destroying the lives of these young adults through deportation is not Christian, moral or right."
